Acting as a stronghold of the Penningtons for over 800 years, the Muncaster Castle is now a living museum and retreat house where you will get to stay back to enjoy the royalty or enjoy an audio guided tour around the castle. The audio tours are conducted and voiced over by the current members of the Penningtons and hence their descriptions, while you are exploring the elegant rooms, the Great Hall, the spacious dining room, and the wonderful octagonal library, will definitely transfer you to the past. Overlooking the ravines and the Lakeland fells, the 77 acre garden looks spectacular with the blossoming Rhododendrons, Azalea and Camellia. The Hawk and Owl prey flying displays are great attraction of Muncaster Castle gardens. Enjoy the Meadow Vole Maze in the Wildflower Meadow and win prizes by answering the questions.
